Speaker of Adamawa State house of Assembly beats up Police man attached to him. The Speaker of the Adamawa state House of Assembly, Kabiru Mijinyawa, has beaten up a police sergeant attached to him, Daily Trust reports. A witness told journalists that the speaker got angry when the policeman complained about non-payment of his allowances.
The speaker was said to have grabbed the policeman and slapped him severally until the man was rescued by some security men around.
“The dazed sergeant was rescued by a civil defenceman who had to remind the speaker that he was beating up a policeman,” the witness said. The Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Othman Abubakar confirmed the development, saying the commander in charge of Yola Area Command was handling the matter. However, attempts to talk to the speaker were unsuccessful as he did not respond to calls and text messages sent to him.
